Took my first guy's golf trip to Ireland
Here are my favorite phrases of the week besides: "another Carlsberg beer..."
1) "Just a wee bit left..."
2) "This club will do you no harm" obviously my caddie didn't see me play Port Rush the day before...
3) "I heard a rumor that Irish golf courses actually have fairways"
4) "Have you ever considered playing tennis over here - we might be able to find your ball"
I had a great time and no golf clubs were injured in Ireland, but that might have been a good idea.
It was a trip of a lifetime - 10 rounds of golf on 8 days/7 nights on Ireland's best courses.
Luckily found a direct flight into Belfast:
Day One: Portstewart Golf Club with accomodations at Bushmills Inn.
Day Two: Ballyliffin Golf Club - "Old Couse" for two rounds
Day Three: Royal Portrush Golf Club - "Dunluce Course" for two rounds.
Day Four: can I stll walk? Royal County Down Golf Club - Slieve Donard Hotel
Day Five: County Louth (Baltray) Golf Club - Westin Dublin Hotel
Day Six: Royal Dublin Golf Club in the morning followed by The Island Golf Club in the afternoon.
Day Seven: The European Club
Day Eight: sleep the whole way back to New York.
Can't wait to see how different the golf courses are in Ireland - the weather will be unpredictable and the pubs should be fun - exactly which wine goes with fish & chips?
And I Learned a long time ago not to go drink for drink with the Irish...I think I've learned.
